Unlikely Servants (Worship Service, May 14th, 2017)

Title: Unlikely Servants

Passage: Exodus 6:9-30

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: May 14th, 2017

After the response of Israel to the Lord’s message through Moses in v 9, the passage has a chiastic or x-like pattern in vv 10-30. Moses is the focus in vv 10-12. Then Moses and Aaron in v 13. Next the genealogy of Moses and Aaron in vv 14-25, followed by a return to Aaron and Moses in vv 26-27, and finally, Moses again in vv 28-30. The passage confirms the truths of vv 1-8, and shows that the Exodus is ultimately the Lord’s work. The Lord is the one who delivers his people. Yes, God uses servants, but he is the one who gets the glory. The primary point of this sermon this morning is that the Lord accomplishes his purposes no matter what.

The Sacred Name, Part 2 (Worship Service, February 19th, 2017)

Title: The Sacred Name, Part 2

Passage: Exodus 3:10-15

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: February 19th, 2017

In a way similar to his call of Moses, God calls us to do extraordinary, things for his sake. He calls us to tasks we are unequal to. I include with this our response to God’s calling on us as Christians, in our vocations and responsibilities, and as evangelists and ministers of Christ to others. As we hear God’s response to Moses, I want us to respond the way God wants Moses to respond: with trust. We must trust the God who calls us.

Holy Ground, Part 1 (Worship Service, January 15th, 2017)

Title: Holy Ground, Part 1

Passage: Exodus 3:1-6

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: January 15th, 2017

When God reveals himself to men, he does so that they might believe on him and love him, so that we might worship and glorify him. So as we come face to face with a monumental passage like Exodus 3:1-6, the point must always be that we must respond to God’s true revelation of himself with faith and love. If it is true that we must respond to God’s true revelation of himself with faith and love, then we should want to know, how does God reveal himself to us? In the text, we see the Lord reveal himself to Moses in four ways:

A Sojourner’s Faith (Worship Service, December 11th, 2016)

Title: A Sojourner’s Faith

Passage: Exodus 2: 11-25

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: December 11th, 2016

Through Moses’s pilgrim wanderings, we see the reality that God is sovereign over the lives of his servants. We are not Moses, and none of us have his calling. Yet, in our own lives, as people who are chosen by God to be his own special possession, as the elect of God, we must trust the wise providence of our invisible God, even when God’s providence leads us to places and circumstances that to us are unexpected and confusing. How can we do this? Moses gives us three examples in our passage to us of how we ought to trust the wise providence of our invisible God.

Faith in an Unpredictable God (Worship Service, December 4th, 2016)

Title: Faith in an Unpredictable God

Passage: Exodus 2: 1-10

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: December 4th, 2016

What we read in Exodus 2 is how one family responds to Pharaoh’s brutality, and how God uses this response to set in motion the events that will lead to real deliverance for the people of Israel. The key idea in this passage is that God in wise providence provides salvation through the simple faith of his people. To show this, I want to draw your attention to three key elements in the story of Moses’s birth:
